In France, fasting will last for 18 hours.

During the festival, Muslims exchanges Ramadan greetings by saying "Ramadan Mubarak" which roughly translates to mean "Happy Ramadan".

"In recognition of this, every year, many of our embassies and consulates around the world host Ramadan activities bringing together Muslims and people of other faiths, who are committed to our shared goal of fostering peace, stability, and prosperity". Muslims keep a day-long fast which begins before the crack of dawn and ends after the sunset. Among Muslims who say religion is "somewhat important", two-thirds (65%) say they fast.

Fasting is one of Islam's five pillars, alongside declaration of monotheism, prayer five times a day, alms-giving, and the pilgrimage to Mecca in Saudi Arabia.

Fasting is not considered compulsory for many groups - including people who are unwell or have a long-term condition; people with learning difficulties; people who are travelling; and women who are pregnant, breastfeeding or menstruating.
